I came across this accidentally. In the video, the speaker reports that E V McCollum, was laughed off the stage by scientists when he suggested that the lack of eating something could cause disease. I suspect it's a legend, but it might be true.


On youtube: What is a Vitamin D deficiency?

It's even more interesting. The man speaking is one of the people who came up with the 400iu amount (he apologizes).

It's all very interesting and very in line with our practices.
